200tdi rear crank seal

Any advise on changing the rear big end seal on a 200tdi?
I have read it is best to fit it dry... True?

Anything to help it not leak in the near future is appreciated!

I have the adapter to the bell housing off as well,I'll be replacing the paper gasket and using a genuine seal.

I use loctite "bearing fit" on the seal to make sure it stays where it's put. Not sure that it is required but I have noticed that the engines I've taken apart have had a similar application at the metal to metal contact point.
Other than that just pay attention when sliding the thing on with the provided installation sleeve and it shouldn't leak. I've generally got a really light coat of light assembly grease on the crank anyhow, (shit rusts really fast around here as I am really close to the ocean) if that's what you mean by dry, I'd have to say I assemble "moist" .

thanks for the advise.

I found that a 4" sewer pipe is the perfect size for driving the seal in.

Tony-
The seal itself is in good shape. But the paper gasket behind was leaking.

I'm going to douch the paper gasket it in halomar before re installing. I also ordered a different rear main from George. The 'proline' one in the kit is quite a bit different than the 'Downty' OE seal, and I would prefer to never do this again!
